The Chief Operating Officer (COO) Engr John Ayodele, while wishing customers of the company and Nigerians a safe and memorable Easter holiday held that in order to ensure steady service delivery during the period.
The COO hinted that a special rapid response team has been put together to reinforce and strengthen service delivery across the state.

Engr. Ayodele charged Nigerians to further reflect on the lessons of piety, love and self-sacrifice for good of others which are the core principles of Easter celebration.
“These lessons of Easter and other injunctions on brotherly love, peaceful co-existence, tolerance, honesty, humility, justice, equity and fairness to all are of particular importance to us as a nation as we continue to strive for a better Nigeria.”
He thereby appealed for the strict observance of COVID-19 precautionary measures as recommended by NCDC of wearing face masks in public places, regular washing of hands & use of sanitisers and physical distancing during the Easter celebrations.
